A couple of extra notes guys.

I'll be making use of the server scheduling feature which should now be working. The maximum practice session is six hours, meaning the event server can't be left up 24/7 for practice on anything other than the race afternoon. So instead there will now be a dedicated practice server, as listed in the OP above.

Second is that the session times have been tweaked. Events will still begin officially at 19:00 UTC, but "official" practice will be 20 minutes (the server will still be online before 19:00 UTC though) and qualifying will be 10 minutes.

Question: 'Silhouette Series' meaning the cars are the same, like DTM?
Not exactly. Silhouette meaning they look like a bit like their road-going counter-part, but are in fact a shell on a racing chassis. The four cars themselves are very well BoP'd so have almost identical pace, but each has a different engine and slightly different handling.

Canhard R51
  • 3.5L V6 normally aspirated
  • 400hp / 422Nm
  • 7500rpm redline
  • Mid-engine
  • 1050kg
  • 46/54 weight distribution
  • 2448mm wheelbase
  • 80 Liter fuel tank. Enough for 1 hour+
Canhard R52
  • 2.5L Inline-5 Turbo charged
  • 415hp / 481Nm
  • 7200rpm redline
  • Front Engine
  • 1035kg
  • 50/50 weight distribution
  • 2448mm wheelbase
  • 80 Liter fuel tank. Enough for 1 hour+
Cougar C14-1
  • 1.8L Inline-4 Turbo charged
  • 420hp / 332Nm
  • 9400rpm redline
  • Front Engine

Canhard R51 #5 for me pls

That being said, I just chose it randomly, I have no idea about the drawbacks / advantages of each car and I probably won't have time to do laps until the weekend. Maybe someone give me a few cues how each car handles, that would be great :D

There's not a lot to be said, really. I'm not sure any of them have any particular advantages or drawbacks, and all are capable of pretty much the exact same pace. I spent hours in them this afternoon and the difference was negligible. This is probably because they are purely fictional cars, which means S3 can do whatever it takes to make them as closely BoP'd as possible. I chose my car based on my preferred appearance and engine sound alone since there was no difference in performance.

They're easy to drive and pretty forgiving, which is why I chose them... great cars to hopefully get some newbies on board.

The R51 sounds gloriously.
Doesn't it just? Main reason I picked it to be honest... if I'm going to be listening to an engine for 90 minutes then it may as well be one I enjoy! Also prefer the cockpit of the Canhard to the Couger, motec is far easier to read in VR. And as an added bonus, the Canhard has a rear-view camera. ;)
